12×16 Storage Shed Doors and Trims Plans

This step by step diy project is about double shed doors plans. This is PART 3 of the gable shed project, where I show you how to build the double front doors for the storage shed. Moreover, I show you how to fit the side door and the decorative trims that will enhance the look of the backyard storage project. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.
